Zinc is one of the most important trace elements in our diet and is required for more than 200 enzyme activities in the body. It is essential for the manufacture of proteins and nucleic acids – the genetic material of cells. Nearly all the cells in the body contain zinc, especially those in the thyroid, pancreas and reproductive organs. Men may particularly benefit from supplementing their diet with zinc, since it plays a key role in the production of male hormones and helps to prevent prostate problems. A deficiency of zinc could mean hair loss and even premature greying. A favourite with vegetarians, smokers, heavy drinkers and the elderly, zinc is long established for its value in helping to maintain a healthy immune system. Valupak Zinc is suitable for vegetarians.
